Back at he beginning of May during the companies big education focused event in New York City, Microsoft made Office 365 for Education available to eligible education institutions at no cost.
Right alongside of that same announcement, Microsoft also confirmed that their new Microsoft Teams collaboration service would also be available to those organizations to use within their schools to enhance the team efforts they put into place.
That means educators, IT Admins, and leadership need to learn more about Microsoft Teams and Office 365 to make sure they take full advantage of these offerings.
In a recent blog post from the Microsoft UK Further Education Blog, Andrew Robertson shared three key resources for these different roles that can be used to bring everyone up to speed on the implementation and use of Microsoft Teams.
Here is what he shared:
